Euroa agents held their monthly store cattle sale on Wednesday 6th February, where agents yarded a respectable 1300 head of cattle.

Expectations were not set at high levels before the sale, with very limited grass and water available. Agents were pleased to see 4-5 major commission buyers in the buying gallery.

The sale commenced as always on the heavier run of yearling steers, with very few good quality pens and limited numbers in pens, prices across this category were generally 10-20 c/kg cheaper.

Once onto the lighter weight weaner steers, prices picked up and were generally firm with rates quoted from 270-300c/kg for the better end of the lighter weight steers.

The yarding of heifers was generally of secondary breeding and condition types. Prices varied depending on breed with many of the Angus and Angus cross cattle sold to fully firm rates, with strong demand for these cattle to go to future grain feeding.

Very few pens of cows and calves were offered, with one pen of 4x4 Angus cows and calves running back to the Angus bull sold for $1180. There was a larger offering of joined females which many were believed to be sold due to lack of water and feed to keep these animals. These cattle were mainly purchased by processors at kill valuerates.

Cattle were mainly purchased by commission buyers operating for interest in Tasmania, NSW and South Gippsland. One Goulburn Valley agent was also very prominent.

Strathbogie Shire Council, in partnership with Mitchell and Murrindindi Councils, will be developing a Waste Education Strategy for the Southern Goulburn Region.

In order to assist our communities, we want to know what you would like to learn about, and how we can better support your household to become more waste wise and produce less waste. 

A survey has been made available on the Strathbogie Shire website www.strathbogie.vic.gov.au for residents to complete until Friday 19th March.

Additionally our Regional Waste and Resource Recovery Education Officer, Grace Davis-Williams, will be hosting a number of pop-up events in the area for community feedback.

At these events you can find out more about using the kerbside bins, access paper versions of the survey and discuss what types of educational programs you would like to see in relation to waste and resource recovery.

Ms Davis- Williams encourages the community to fill in the quick survey or pop in and chat with her at one of the pop-up events.

“We want to get a better understanding of community needs regarding waste and resource recovery education so that we can deliver an education program that is relevant and useful for local residents,” Ms Davis-Williams explained.

The following pop-up events are happening in the Strathbogie Shire:

Friday 15th February, Violet Town

The Twilight Hawkers Market will once more bring great fun and flavour to Euroa on Saturday 23rd February at the Seven Creeks Park from 6pm.

Celebrating diversity and inclusion, this year’s celebration will feature the Sapphire Bollywood Dancers, who guarantee laughter and participation from all spectators.

Fabulous food, lively entertainment and kid’s competitions are what have attracted crowds in the past, so this winning formula will stay in 2019.

Strathbogie Shire Council has backed the event by kicking in a $3,000 Arts, Culture and Events Grant through their successful Community Grants Program.

Strathbogie Shire Mayor Amanda McClaren said Council is pleased to be able to support community events that contribute to the social fabric of the local community.

“Events like the Twilight Hawkers Market are fantastic in providing social, cultural and recreational connectivity for our community, as well as contributing to local tourism and economic development.”
